Every recipe has a story! Jillian told us theirs: “I’m on a 10 day detox cleanse, and have only been eating vegetables and fruits for the past four days. I needed substantial meal that wouldn’t interrupt my cleanse, and this totally worked! It feels good to eat and still be healthy! Have to give props to the employee at Whole Foods who introduced me to brown rice tortillas in order to make this dish into an awesome burrito!” –Jillian
